Add Text To The Windows 7 Taskbar Buttons

If you love the look of Windows 7 but you're aching to get a little helpful text back on your big taskbar buttons, weblog Tech-Recipes details how to add text to the by default icon-only Windows 7 taskbar. Just right-click the taskbar, select Properties, then change the Taskbar buttons drop-down from "Always combine, hide labels" to "Never combine." Mission accomplished. You can also select "Combine when taskbar is full" to keep the text there when you've got room for it, then collapse to the icon-only view when your taskbar fills up.


    I find the new superbar cool but not effective. Sometimes I open 2 windows explorer to copy-paste files but when they are being combined into a single icon, it takes me several steps now to re-open the windows :)

    So I choose the "Never combine"
